GMOs in Thailand Produce and Beyond

by Admin on October 8, 2012

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) have been making headlines with the harmful effects they have been shown to cause.

Though many countries, such as Thailand, require labels for GMO produce there is still a substantial amount of produce that is being distributed in the food market that contains traces of GMOs. Many times GMO in produce is overlooked since some countries only require a GMO label if there is five per cent GMO or more.

A recent study in France showed that rats fed on Monsanto’s NK603 GM corn or exposed to its top-selling Roundup glyphosate weed killer were at higher risk of suffering tumors, multiple organ damage and premature death.

However, organizations such as GM Watch and Earth Open Source are fighting the GMO battle trying to improve the global food system.

Does this mean GMO’s are allowed in Thailand or not?

I live in Thailand.

What does a GMO label look like? Is it miniscule print or much much smaller. For example I have never seen any obvious GMO labeling on any Nestle product or Coke or Pepsi…I’ll look again but I think it is important that the public knows exactly what it looks like and where to find it on the label.
